I believe it works, although it is weird indeed. Try to unmount your weapon and see what happens to your stats. Compare that with an item comparable in stats.
To me, the difference is obvious.

It only increases your damage. The gem itself does not display a x2 bonus.

No, it's fine this way. The gem is NOT changed. The calculation is 2x gem bonus. If players see the bonus, for example, 1200, they might think "Let's extract the gem and use it for another non-weapon item..."...then they get only +600 and are upset.

You're right. Anyway i would to see "x2" in description.
For example:
Dexterity gem in weapon: +600 (x2)

The problem with leaving it out of the game interface is that people not following forums/guides (although not all guides are up to standard and some things are missing) or are new will have no idea about it, thus creating a disadvantage. There are games in which this way is sort of justifiable but they are tenfolds more complex. I don't think it will hurt anyone having an additional line of text on weapons tooltip "(Gems placed in X weapon's slot increases damage x2 from said gem)" where X would be class of the player.

+ 600 (x2) could be misunderstood. 1200 (doubled) is the same in the other way.

Maybe - Client 3.0 is coming soon - it would have more sense to find a common way then.

EDIT: Don't know how often 100 + 100 x 2 is calculated the wrong way?

In math 600 x2 equal 1200. That's true. However in description it's making a difference. By that you know the gem in weapon doubles your gem stat.

Are existing weapon gems doubled or do you need to insert a new one?
